Race Fans Have Fun Behind the Scenes of NASCAR

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- NASCAR has a tradition of allowing fans to meet drivers before and after the race. It's something most sports don't allow because pre-game time is an intense time in other sports.

If you're able to get a track pass or a hot garage and pit pass for a NASCAR race it give you access to the drivers. Jaydn Brown attended his first NASCAR race on Sunday. His dad got him a track pass so he can get some face time with the drivers.

"We are walking around and hoping a race car driver will be out," Brown said.

The special passes allow fans on the track, garages and pit passes. That makes it easier for fans to see the cars and get autographs and pictures with drivers. That kind of fan experience is something Pat Warren, Kansas Speedway President says fans really look forward to.

"Traditionally it's a very open sport people can be in the garage, it's very embracing of the fans," said Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren. "We've got fans out there this morning at the start and finish line imagine walking on the field at Arrowhead just before a game,but NASCAR we are all about the fan experience."

For some seeing the pit crews in action changing tires and refueling in seconds are reasons enough to get a special pass.
